Innovating the greenhouse market starting with climate

Producing high-quality, healthy, genuine tomatoes with an unmistakable flavour, 365 days a year, in a sustainable, efficient and affordable way: this is the challenging goal of the Lapietra Brothers. To reach this ambitious target they have identified climate control as a key variable to achieve a standard crop both from a quantitative point of view, and qualitative.

Background

Azienda Agricola Fratelli Lapietra represents excellence in Italy. The company develops an average annual production around 4,000 tons of tomatoes and over a thousand tons of cucumbers whose destination is mainly the regional quality retail market, according to the zero km concept, with requests also from Northern Italy and Central Europe.

Pursuing and adopting sustainable and cutting-edge solutions, Enzo and Lino Lapietra continue their father Antonio’s legacy but focus on greenhouse cultivation and soilless cultivation. Their tomatoes and cucumbers are not grown in the open field, they grow in greenhouses equipped with some of the most advanced technologies on an international level.



Solutions

After an in-depth study of the territory and the existing plant structures, our Application Team designed, developed and implemented an innovative solution able to ensure an optimal climate throughout the year.
The beating heart of this refined ecosystem is the semi-closed glass greenhouse, the first in Italy, to which Fratelli Lapietra have dedicated over 2 hectares of their total production of 10 hectares. This type of greenhouse, covered by an iron-glass structure with soft light, allows the regulation and optimization of the intake of solar radiation depending on the season and, through the ventilation management system, is able to manage the CO2 levels and avoid the formation of pathogenic outbreaks.




Proof

Growing in a semi-closed glass greenhouse means recreating an optimal micro-climate characterized by a continuous air exchange carried out in an active way.
The solution designed and implemented by Munters is equipped with sensors that monitor climatic parameters and also guarantees a constant standard temperature and relative humidity. It is an integrated high-tech, computerized and automated system, contributing to environmental sustainability, focused on the control of many environmental variables, in and outside the greenhouse structure.



Results & Conclusions

Our all-in-one solution has taken into account the specificities of the company, the climate and geographical variables. The result is a customized project. Our team of experts and researchers, with an international experience developed at every latitude, has supported Fratelli Lapietra since the design phase, has assisted them throughout the installation phase with constant consulting services and optimized logistics operations, which is still present with the after-sales service, and constant and two-way dialogue to consolidate the results achieved.

The result is a product with zero residue, that is, without residues of phytosanitary products.
Tomatoes grown in this greenhouse are not only tastier, more genuine and healthier, but also and above all more sustainable. This innovate technology has allowed Fratelli Lapietra to take full advantage of solar energy, particularly abundant in this area, while significantly reducing water consumption.
